Festival Feeling

Wearing a black flower headband, Phister & Philiner playsuit and squirrels tail from Tell Tails outside the Big Top!

We have just come back from Camp Bestival, a festival that is geared around kids. We go every year and this year there seemed to be more kids than ever! Millie loves going as she feels she has been to a festival but feels safe dancing until midnight to Dick and Dom (yes thats right - Dick and Dom did a DJ set and we loved it!)

Black spot bomber jacket from H&M

Festival goes hand in hand with camping, and camping means you have to pack light. Theres no point lugging truck loads of suitcases, it will just break your back and you probably won't end up wearing the majority of items.

Get creative with UV facepaint, eyelashes and headbands!

But you don't want to hold back your creativity, as Camp Bestival is very much a creative festival this can be tricky. So the best option is to pack clothing that is light and doesn't need an iron! Light cotton and layers are the answer to this and also denim, denim shorts and jeans!!!

Welly Wanging!

There are many stall set up around the festival and there was one in particular I see each year that is very exciting called Sisters Guild!

Sisters Guild is an online shop that stocks some of the best in childrens fashion of a mid price range. Labels include: Bobo Choses, ilovegorgeous and and Petti Skirts (which Millie LOVED).

Hello! We haven't posted for some time now! But we have all been very busy! Normal service will resume as we are back to normal! Millie's daddy has been filming some music videos and I have been giving him advice on the styling side of things! Which was very enjoyable! All the ideas I gave him seemed to work and the artists loved them! YAY! But more on that later!

Millie has been involved in the music videos alot too, espeically for the Union J video Millie's dad directed and shot! She loves them and was so happy but super shy when first meeting them!!! But after a day of hanging out she was fine, in fact I found her on their tour van chatting away like old friends!!! 

The picture here of her, George and Josh is so funny! I haven't ever seen her pull such a face before! It is a face of excitement and complete shock!!! 

Oh and watch out for Millie and her best friend Winnie, they have just recorded their first ever Vlog, its full of fashion tips and ideas!!! It will be on here very soon!

Trends 2013

I have researched the key emerging trends for womenswear for 2013 and rounded up a kid friendly version of each trend.

 Trend: Relaxed Shorts

Comfy and relaxed, this trend was all over the New York catwalks!

Perfect fit for girls that don't want fussy tight fitting clothing, especially in the warmer months, these relaxed shorts from BoBo Choses are great. Team with an equally fluid shirt in a delicate colour & print and cute ballet pumps this outfit deserves a great summer!

Trend: Black and White

Whether it was Ralph Lauren, Oscar De La Renta or Michael Kors, black and white was seen in full effect across the fashion weeks.

There are quite a few interpretations of this trend for girls, but this dress from River Island embodies a few trends in one, stripe, contour lines and a fluid skater dress! Perfect with white pumps for a 50's inspired look!

 Trend: Stripes

Every colour goes and the stripe is placed at every angle! This trend is fun, bright and easy! We all own a stripey item!

I've said it before and no doubt I will say it again, but the best label for great quality stripey clothing for kids in all manner of colours is from label Katvig. I can't choose which item to post, so I selected a few items.

 All above items are from Katvig @ Nordic Kids.

Trend: Beading / Embellishing

Something for the older child that won't eat the beads! The beading / embellishing trend is super pretty and delicate! Look for tees with detailing on the shoulder or a dress with a bib front bead placement and team with harder DM style boots for a edgy look or beaded pumps for the OTT look of the trend!

This Limited Edition beaded playsuit from River Island is spot on!

Trend: Sporty Dresses

Think skater dresses or tennis dresses! And the only place to go for such items is the king of all stuff sport/fashion - American Apparel! Their lovely simple skater style dresses for girls would look amazing with baseball boots and baseball hat! Toooooooo cool!

American Apparel is the best place to go for this trend for both kids and adults!

Trend: Flat shoes

I love that this trend is so acessable to girls of Millies age! Whether Converse high tops or ballet pumps flats rule for any age!

These bright blue brogue detailed flats from Boden are great and would brighten up any outfit!

New Shoes!

So we went a little crazy at Dr Martens!

Millie loves her hot pink boots, that go so well with her stripe River Island leggings! The hot pink colour will look great for spring/summer with dresses!

I am also loving the idea of girly dresses and my baby pink DM shoes for summer, when it gets here!

CIFF Kids Fashion Week for SS13

Its the Fashion Weeks across the globe and CIFF Kids have again put on some amazing shows! Even though it was shown some months ago, to make it relevant for right now here is the SS 13 show! Enjoy!

Growing Up Fast!

It has been quite some time since the last post! But we are back and we are all a bit older! What does this mean for Millie Is Wearing? Well it means Millie has even more input in what she thinks looks good! She will be adding her styling tips to the posts too - So watch this space!

Today's post is about her new outfit that Millie is wearing! The most amazing military jacket is from TK Maxx and really does have a similar feel to the Stella McCartney one we saw a couple of seasons ago, but this one because from TK Maxx was just £19.99!!! The jacket goes with anything and always adds a Camden feel to any outfit!

But today it has been teamed with a French Connection stripe dress and Phister and Philina harem pants. The dress is going to be a great throw on and not think about it item throughout summer! And the trousers... well lets talk about these amazing harem trousers!

Tight at the bottom and amazingly voluminous at the top they are just so high fashion! The light grey circles on the dark grey background are just so cute without being too childlike! Millie loves them as she can run around, roll around and climb trees without showing her pants! (Her words)

To top off the look these patent Dr. Martens boots are just perfect, adding a bit of edgy bulk whilst not making the outfit look too hard!

We have seen alot of neon accessories the past seasons, with handbags, jewellery and bobble hats brightening up outfits! Millie's neon green Dakine hat is great, its super chunky and bought from a skate shop, so Millie thinks its really coooooool!


"If you're a girl and you're like a tomboy, all in ones play suits with flowers and pink stuff on them are great for parties. It is girlie enough for a party but they're trousers so you can still climb things!"
